That crazy annelid wants more of your money.
Majesco's newest Super NES to GBA port, Earthworm Jim 2 was originally developed by Shiny (currently working on Enter the Matrix). Although Jim's first appearance on GBA was developed internally by Pipe Dream Interactive, Majesco has commissioned the sequel to a company called Super Empire. The game should be in stores later this week for the new standard GBA software price, $29.95.
THE SPINELESS SUPERHERO RETURNS AS MAJESCO SHIPS 'EARTHWORM JIM 2' FOR THE GAME BOY® ADVANCE
Highly Anticipated Sequel Now Available
EDISON, NJ, June 5, 2002 - Delighting a legion of Earthworm Jim fans everywhere, Majesco, one of the fastest-growing publishers of interactive entertainment software, today announced it has shipped Earthworm Jim 2 for the Nintendo Game Boy® Advance. Developed by Super Empire, the side-scrolling, action-adventure sequel returns with its trademark game play, entirely updated with exciting new features.
"Earthworm Jim is arguably one of the greatest game franchises of all time," said Ken Gold, Vice President of Marketing for Majesco. "We're thrilled to be able to bring this classic to a whole new generation of gamers."
Based on David Perry's groundbreaking video game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Earthworm Jim 2 for the Game Boy Advance once again captivates game players with state-of-the-art graphics and game play that made the original game an instant classic.
Following up on the success of its Game Boy Advance predecessor, Earthworm Jim 2 reunites players with the popular spineless superhero as he travels through fifteen action-packed levels interacting with some of the most intense opponents ever designed for the handheld video game system.
From Evil the Cat's "Circus of the Scars" to the "Planet of Meat," players join Jim on a madcap chase across the galaxy. Saving cows, thwarting lawyers and outsmarting Psy-Crow are in all in a day's work for Jim.
Joining Jim is an eclectic and bizarre cast of such familiar characters as Princess What's-Her-Name, Peter Puppy and Bob the Goldfish. Highlights of Earthworm Jim 2 include:
Weapons - an amazing arsenal of weaponry from which to choose, including 3 Finger Gun, Barn Blaster, Homing Missile and Ammo Booster;
Wacky Levels - Intricate and untraditional level designs are once again a hallmark of Jim's twisted world;
Returning Characters -- all of Jim original sidekicks and costars are reunited under one video-game roof;
Movement - players are able to whip, run, jump, fly and snot-swing their way into Princess What's-Her-Name heart and ultimately, to victory.
Earthworm Jim 2 for Game Boy Advance is now available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $29.99. More information on this title, as well as Majesco's entire line-up of exciting products can be found online at www.majescogames.com.
